11 Parent Reviews for Garden Villas Elementary School

I attended Garden Villas until 2002, and I would never go anywhere else if I had it to do over again. There are less and less schools that truly care for the students and parents that rely on them- Garden Villas stands above the rest. The music, cheerleading, and dancing programs are excellent, the field ...  Read more

I have worked at GV for 17 years. I have my dream job! We have a beautiful neighborhood, renovated school, new principal and dedicated parents. I sure hope our rating improves, we sure are headed in the right direction!

I am 33 and this was my elementary school. I'm sure it has changed, but I wanted to add my 2 cents. I can't remember my violin teacher's name, but he was AWESOME.

This is the best music magnet school in Houston! G.V. has the same band teacher since I was a student there 30 years ago. My three boys have gone there and are great musicians today. The band students are better performers than regular high school bands, if you don't believe me come and hear them. ...  Read more

Our family is very happy with the staff and teaching at Garden Villas. My daughter is in kindergarten and we hope to enroll our youngest daughter in pre-kindergarten next year. It is a great school with good parent participation and located in a nice family oriented neighbor. It's great!

Our children attended this great school for only one year. One in 2nd grade the other in pre-k. The principal Ms. Terry Autry is second to none in the care and attention to detail that she demonstrates as the leader of this school. As once having been a teacher there, this is her pride and joy. She is ...  Read more
